Regenerative, sustainable and bountiful gardens are not just for commercial growers. We want to see as many thriving home gardens as possible. Supplementing the weekly meals, or providing the bulk, it doesn't matter. Get the most out of your home garden next year - or start a new one, and enjoy the benefits of fresh homegrown food.
Our workshops are varied between sharing the practical and theoretical knowledge we use to produce great food. We aim for you to leave with having learnt something you can apply straight away in your garden. All our workshops are held at the farm in Greytown.
To us, regenerative means farming in a way that improves the resources it uses, rather than destroying or depleting them. This is not a textbook process, but rather a practice rooted in our context and conditions. Ecosystems are an evolving spiral, requiring continuous learning and observation by the grower to contribute positively to its growth.
Compost is the three course meal for the soil. It's a balanced diet for the microbes and soil animals feeding your garden, and it's easy to make.
Join Sheldon at the compost heap to learn from his many years making compost, and the best ways to make great compost at home!
Learn how we take our seeds from the packet to a strong & healthy seedling ready for transplant. Learn the techniques for the different familes, what soil mix to use and other tips and tricks we have learned over the years of growing.
Polycropping is a simple way to get more growing in a small space. It also has many benefits for the soil and ecology of your garden. Come along to learn how it works, and see some simple planting guilds in action.
Come and learn the ins and outs of how we grow different crops. We will cover starting them off, transplanting, and caring for them to get a bountiful harvest.
